The holiday season is just around the corner, and we all know it's the best time of year. Freeform's annual "25 Days of Christmas" is always something I look forward to.

However, the Christmas movie lineup seems to be lacking a ton of the holiday classics. How can I get through December without seeing "Home Alone"? Or "Elf"? Or even "A Charlie Brown Christmas"?

Despite the lack of my favorite films, I will always be loyal to Freeform and will still be watching, of course. How else will I get into the holiday spirit? The holidays just wouldn't be the same without these iconic Christmas films, and Freeform should put them on their list ASAP.

1. "Home Alone"

Freeform may be playing the sequels to "Home Alone", but it's not the same without the original classic. Watching Kevin take down the burglars with Christmas ornaments and other festive decorations is the best part of this movie.

2. "Snow Day"

This 2000 film had every kid wishing their snow days were like Natalie's. Her success in plowing the snow back onto the streets in order to get two days off of school definitely had me thinking about doing the same thing. Also, seeing a young Josh Peck is always a plus. Anything can happen on a snow day!

3. "Elf"

This movie is literally the epitome of the holiday season. It's everyone's favorite movie, and usually Freeform has it playing on repeat, but this year it didn't make the lineup! Don't forget that the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

4. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"

The Griswold family's Christmas plans going wrong is always sure to give you a laugh. It reminds us that not everything goes as planned, especially when your family is involved!

5. "The Polar Express"

What kid didn't want to be woken up in the middle of the night by a magical train that takes you to the North Pole? This movie is sure to bring out your inner kid and shows you to never stop believing in the spirit of Christmas. It's essential to watch it during the holiday season.

6. "A Christmas Story"

TNT does their annual "24 Hours of A Christmas Story" where they play this classic 12 times in a row, but Freeform would be 10 times better if they added it to their list. This movie is full of iconic moments and hilarious jokes, all surrounding the wonderful holiday of Christmas. Don't shoot your eye out!

7. "Frosty the Snowman"

A literal ICON of the holiday season. How can you even think about snow and the holidays without the image of Frosty? It's impossible not to tear up when Frosty melts, but Santa comes through with that magic and makes Karen's holiday one to remember.

8. "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"

The classic holiday claymation movies are my personal favorite. What's the holiday season without Rudolph, Hermey, and the island of misfit toys?

9. "A Charlie Brown Christmas"

What's the holiday season without Charlie Brown? The iconic Charlie Brown Christmas tree is one of my favorite decorations I have in my house. The soundtrack from this film is sure to get you into the holiday spirit.

10. "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (1966)

Freeform is playing the 2000 version of this film, but I've always liked the cartoon better. Did Jim Carrey as the Grinch scare anyone else as a kid?

11. "Love, Actually"

This beautiful film reminds us that we're all connected by love, and it's important to remember that during the holiday season. There's no better time to fall in love than during the holidays!

12. "Eloise at Christmastime"

This was the Christmas movie of my childhood. I adored Eloise and her crazy antics, and I was always wishing I could have a life like hers. Christmastime at the plaza was something that seemed so magical.

13. "Jack Frost"

This may be the saddest movie EVER, but it is such a touching story. A young boy's father passes away and comes back to him in the form of a snowman named Jack Frost. It's a beautiful Christmas story that reminds us of love and family.

Freeform always has the best films premiering during the holiday season, but this year they're definitely missing some of the classics! Don't worry, that won't stop me from watching them. Happy Holidays!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
